I know a lot of people use ACV, but I've used it and honestly it does abosolutely nothing for my hair, not a thing. I never understood all the rave. I tried using it for several weeks to see if continued use would make a difference and it did not.

Some of the products suggested are not true leave in conditioners, they are styling products. A true conditioner is rich in the major emollients (fatty alcohols and/ or cationic surfactants), these soften the hair, provide slip, help it hold the right amount of water, aid clumping/ frizz control.

What is your porosity and dew points/ humidity? This affects product selection. Shea butter can build up for some people.
